Have you ever had spirulina juice? I used to drink it and take tablets when I was living in New Zealand. Spirulina is a fresh water blue-green algae. It is considered a superfood because it’s a very nutrient dense food. It has a lot of protein, vitamin B1, iron, calcium, and other vitamins and minerals. It is also a powerful antioxidant. Now why did I tell you all this? Well, I needed an intro, but the eye cream that I am reviewing from Soo Nature that was sent to me from the K-Beauty Expo contains this very interesting ingredient. Soo Nature is a Korean brand that emphasizes its use of safe and natural ingredients. They try to avoid any preservative and chemical ingredients
Packaging & Formulation
The eye cream comes in a jar and in the box there were two little plastic spatulas. A jar contains 30 ml/1.0 fl.oz and it costs 36,000KRW. It’s not a bad price for an eye cream! The ingredients in the eye cream was surprisingly very clean. No PEG/PPG, mineral oil, parabens, etc. It does have fragrance though. It smells like flowery lime to me. It has 6000mg of spirulina extract and 1000ppm spirulina powder. It also has moisturizing, anti-wrinkle, and brightening ingredients like shea butter, squalene, niacinamide, jojoba seed oil, sweet almond oil, honey, adenosine, allatonin, beta glucan, galactomyces, and trehalose. Extracts include panax ginseng, Korean red ginseng, brown algae, and mugwort. Just reading the ingredients list I was so happy!
Texture & Application
The eye cream has a soft pillowy sherbet texture. When trying to get the product out with your finger, you wont get a lot of pick up, so I think using the spatula is best to get the desired amount. It goes on nicely and after I swipe under the eye I do light tapping motion with my ring finger to get to absorb. It has no greasy feeling and my under eyes feels moisturized and hydrated. I didn’t see much of a wrinkle filling effect as it claims to do. I would say it has a blurring effect because of the pillowy texture. However, I do like it a lot because it doesn’t migrate like creamier eye creams.
I think this is a great eye cream for those who have sensitive skin types. I don’t think this is enough for mature skin. 20-30s is a good age range that would suit this eye cream in my opinion. You can visit the Soo Nature website at www.soo-nature.com.
Again this was sent to me for review purposes from the K-Beauty Expo. I have free reign over my opinions and what I have written here is all me. Thanks for reading!
